: this is a fox news alert. third explosion at nuclear reactor number 2 happening a short while ago. causing japan to have new grave fears of a radiation leak. this nightmare just got worse. shepard smith is live in japan. latest from him in minutes. right now, more than 2,000 confirmed dead. waves of bodies washing ashore. that is only the beginning. the number of dead is expected to hit 10,000 or more. millions tonight have no food, no water and no heat in near freezing temperatures. they are homeless and cramming into shelters. this hell on earth started with the quake, then the monster tsunami wiping out villages. the only thing left to one village is their website. everything else, including its people, washed away. new haunting video from the airport. >> greta: you can hear the panic as the walls of water rolling taking everything in its wake, structures, cars even the people. at this hour, it is 11 a.m. in japan tomorrow morning where the japanese are raising the clock to prevent a nuclear meltdown. shepard smith joins us live from tokyo. >> shepard: good morning from tokyo. we are waiting
able to switch to backup, to on site diesel generators. remember, the earthquake that hit japan was offshore. the tsunami caused by the earthquake didn't hit shore until about an hour after the big quake. so at 2:46, after the quake, but before the tsunami, the reactor is shut down. right? and they lost power. but their on site generators were working to keep the thing cool. but then 55 minutes later at 3:41 local time, a second announcement came from that plant. now the backup generators were out, too. we don't know if they were knocked out by the tsunami, timing seems right, but the backup power source failed. then the daiichi was back to the battery powered. and that only lasts until the batteries hold out, if they can't be recharged. the stakes are high. if they cannot keep power onto keep water circulating through the cooling system around the nuclear core, it will evaporate the water around it, the core will be exposed, and it will melt down, and that is very bad. authorities initially evacuated a two mile radius around the plant. then extended that evacuation area to six
and let it play for you just as it was covered in the news in japan. take a look. >> that's how it all unfolded. right after the tsunami an earthquake hit. of course, after this, the initial shock. then came the damage. take a look at this new video coming in. craters in the streets all over japan, and that is just to start. and, again, all of these images are coming to us from japanese television. and as we go through this broadcast, we're just going to talk over the video and just let you look at it for yourself. look at this. that was probably a neighborhood once. now it's a field of destruction. these are the streets. police on the streets. cars trying to get through when they can. most of it, we're told, is just uninhabitable. look at that. people trying to figure out exactly what's going on. they're wearing masks. many people close to the source of that explosion at a nuclear plant have been wearing radiation suits. and a lot of this, again, coming to us from japanese television. it is incredible to see these images. >>> also happening as we speak, rescues from the rubble and the
of one of japan's coastal nuclear power plants. as we look at some of the new images coming into us, japan's national police estimate at least 184 people are dead, 530 are miss, but we are certain as we watch these new images come in that that number will climb as the waters recede. some government officials, in fact, quoted in japanese media outlets predicting the death toll at a minimum will pass the 1,000 mark. there's been a little over 18 hours now. let's take a closer look. it's a magnitude 8.9 quake recorded right here off japan's eastern coast. you see the town of sendai. that was closest. tokyo down here. the hashedest hit, this flashing ring here, but vibrations all the way down throughout japan's coastal areas right here. the images are stunning. first the vibrations and the strong earthquake, the strongest on record in japan. then not long after all that shaking, the breathtaking power of the waters unleashed by a 30 foot tsunami. cars and boats, even homes tossed about like toys. look again at these images here. it is just striking the awesome, sobering power of the wat

ruptured japan. just minutes ago the japanese military making the extraordinary discovery and the rescue. the man buried in rubble in one of japan's hardest hit area. and more breaking news. japan makes another announcement though this is grim. the nuclear crisis level raised to a level five. meanwhile, more bad news. time, well, it is running out. japan could be facing its final option, to bury an active nuclear reactor and right now, teams are scrambling to get power pumping into two reactors. they have repaired the power cable but don't take a deep breath. they don't know if the power is working yet and even should the power work they don't know if the pumps they seek to get pumping with the power are working. the situation tonight remains very unstable. very uncertain and no one can tell you exactly what is going happen. and what about the japanese people? those who live near the nuclear reactors? are they getting the truth, all of it. that matters. this is life or death with them. their anxiety, it is real and it is rational. one nuclear plant chief is in tears. he says people could
that destroyed significant parts of the northern part of japan on the coast and the third could be the worst, which is nuclear fallout and the worst of that situation. just from what we know which as you mentioned the information is changing rapidly, it is hampering search-and-rescue efforts significantly and the ability to get supplies to the city affected most by the earthquake and tsunami. i have her stories from someone, her sister-in-law, she is at one shelter and so much of the infrastructure is destroyed or damaged and so is the information, it is scattered, and assistance is coming in from all over, and the buildings with collapsed but the video shows it was. that is the situation. making it very tough especially for the search-and-rescue folks gathering in tokyo who want to head north. but they can't because the reactor is on the road that goes from the worst areas from the earthquake and tsunami. >>dave: this is frightening. and now, our guest says worst case scenario is it reaches the united states, the bpc is reporting that serious damage to the nuclear reactor is unlikely despit
the devastation in japan but the nuclear crisis which gets more and more dire by the hour. toyota losing $73 million a day as a result of their plant closings and they're not the only ones sufficie s suffering . no market hit harder than japan's itself. the nikkei plummeting 16% over the past two days and as barry will point out, more than 20% from its levels prior to this crisis. all of those numbers, the worst they've seen in that country, since 1987 wall street had all sorts of common tear today including those who believe there is further room for weak innocence our markets that have run up over the past couple of years driven by frederal reserv money printing. what happen do investors are the rest of us ultimately anticipate will be effect of all of this? that is the question. joining us, ceo and exquity director. barry it looked like any asset that existed became worse less. oil, gold, everybody become worth less, why? >> the fear trade, the risk-on trade, people have a tendency to panic when they don't know what's going on. you don't know how to discount the impact of a possible nucle
in japan this morning who are wondering whether they are getting the right information and whether the radioactive levels they are being told are accurate. no one can know. including the government which has not given up all the information it has had in times past and tepco which has given enact tphreufgts in times past. a lot of people -- inaccurate information in times past. >> sean: radiation that causes severe cancer, thyroid, bone cancer, leukemia. i want to go through these reactors within by one. reactor number 1 began leaking radiation if we recall saturday. they vented the air that triggered the explosion there. there's the fear the fuel rods are melting on reactor 1. reactor 2, they did the explosion the day before and the rods similarly overheated and we expect a meltdown in there. reactor number 3, they suffered a hydrogen explosion. that's believed to be melting down. now reactor number 4 seems to be going in the direction of number 1. it looks like, you know that every reactor now four of the six are problematic. >> shepard: they are. in fact we've been able to get s
aftershocks. japan's index, the nikkei nose dived. the stock average fell 10.6%, down as much as 14% off one point during the day as worries of more reactor explosions increased. tokyo electric power stock, the owner of these reactors fell nearly 25% today. a look at our markets today, as you see, red arrows across the board. the dow jones down by 215 points. it's only 11:00 a.m. it's a reaction to what we have seen overseas and many market analysts did expect this. i'm thomas roberts. great to have you with me. japanese officials did raise the death toll to more than 2,700 people today but thousands more are still missing and boys continue to wash ashore. 400,000 people are homeless battling cold and windy conditions. nbc's ian williams is innia ma ga ta with the latest on the rescue and aid operations. >> good morning from yamagata air base where u.s. smirlt officers are in discussion about aid for survivors of the disaster. this could become a forward operating base for a major u.s. marine operation. we witnessed a navy c-130 transport aircraft fly in earlier. a heavy lift aircraft capabl
are hammering financial markets, with stocks plunging worldwide, japan with its worst two-day slump in two decades, down 11%. death toll has officially reached 3,300. while thousands more remain missing. but today, a small sign of hope. a man found alive, pulled from the rubble, four days after the earthquake struck. a small miracle, but a miracle, nonetheless. nbc's kristin dahlgren is closely following developments in the area and joins us live from tokyo. good evening, kristin. >> reporter: good evening, martin. the latest we're hearing from this washington, d.c.-based nuclear research group is that they expect this disasterer to reach a seven on their scale of nuclear radioactive disasters, the only other accident to reach that level is chernobyl. so that gives you some idea of what some experts think we could possibly be looking at here. of course, nobody at this point knows. we're told even here in tokyo there's some elevated levels of radioactivity, about ten times what is normal and officials don't believe that poses any health risk, but others say they're not sure of what the long
that people are picking up now who have been traveling around in japan, at least they were working at the nuclear facility, are minuscule. there is a lot of radiation at the site, but there's not a lot of radiation in the environment. there's very sensitive instruments to measure it, but it does not mean that the level is a health threat. now, the big concern right now is that here in tokyo, because this is now downwind, the winds have shifted. usually, they have been pushing the radiation out to sea. now the winds are aiming at tokyo. and 30 million people live in the greater tokyo area. and so if there were to be a massive release now, it's a big deal. so there's a lot of fear about that issue around here. >> and so, bob, given what the japanese government has said so far, i mean, they're telling people within a 19-mile radius to stay inside. our government is telling americans 50 miles away, no, get out. do the japanese people trust their government is going to protect them? >> reporter: well, some do and some don't, of course. and there's a lot of people who have already left t
